i'm jeff glor. nearly 48 hours after a horrific crash in oklahoma there are more questions than answers. 25-year-old adacia chambers will be in court today. she was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence. four people were killed at oklahoma state's homecoming parade including a 2-year-old boy and a married couple. 11 children were among the 46 hurt. several remain in critical condition. adriana diaz has video of the crash as it happened, and a warning, it can be hard to watch. >> reporter: as many as 500 people were at the intersection when the car barreled into the crowd. >> all available units. all available units, need you to respond to one hall of fame and north street. >> they didn't know what hit them. >> reporter: anthony wyatt saw the hyundai sedan going 40 miles an hour and tried to stop it. >> i see a car hit the barricade and i jump out and i go no,
you're going the wrong way, stop, stop. and she floorboarded it -- or whoever's in there floorboarded it. i could see the wall of people. i knew what was going to happen. and she hit the motorcycle and people went everywhere. >> reporter: the driver, 25-year-old adacia chambers, was arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence. three people died at the scene including marvin stone and his wife, bonnie. marvin was a retired engineering professor at osu. 23-year-old nakita prabhakar, a student from a nearby university, was also killed. hours later 2-year-old nash lucas died at the hospital. he was an only child. 46 others were injured, some critically. the incident happened after chambers left her job at freddie's frozen custard. it's roughly half a mile down main street. chambers' fiance told cbs news she left work early but didn't know why. in a phone interview with cbs affiliate kwtv adacia's father, floyd chambers, said his
prescription pills. >> she's not a bad person. she's not an alcoholic. she doesn't drink and she wasn't drinking. she's a good person, a loving caring person. this is just a tragic thing that happened. i don't know why it happened. >> reporter: anthony wyatt said the driver made no attempt to stop. >> did it seem deliberate? >> oh, yeah. from my perspective, yeah. because when she hit the -- when she hit the barricade then she gunned it. she dropped on the gas. >> is it hard for you to be back here? >> no, i wanted to come back here and pray this morning. you see something like that, you can't erase it. >> reporter: chambers is being held on charges of second-degree murder. jeff, she'll be arraigned tomorrow afternoon. >> adriana diaz, thank you very much, in oklahoma tonight. flash flood warnings stretch across the coast of texas and louisiana all the way to the florida panhandle. david begnaud moved east with the storms today and reports now from carencro, louisiana. >> reporter: as the rain rolled in overnight so did the calls
for help. >> rescue 11 alpha. >> reporter: this man clung to a tree according to firefighters who rescued him. david swanson is a district chief with the houston fire department. >> he called 911 and dispatched the units, and we got down here and it took us a while to locate him. >> reporter: roger choate was stranded in his car. >> didn't see it until i hit it. got out and i just stood there and watched my car slowly disappear. >> you called 911? >> 911, yeah. >> you left the keys in the car. >> yeah. >> reporter: we saw duc nguyen staring at his stranded sedan stuck for more than nine hours. duc says when he drove under the overpass there were no barricades to stop him and he couldn't see flood water. he says he was in the right-hand lane. he hit water and his car moved left. it stalled. so he got out and abandoned it. at midnight he says the water was near the tire level. by 4:00 a.m. it was nearly
submerged. looking inside around 9:00 a.m., there's water inside that's nearly up to the rearview mirror. in the last 24 hours there were at least 28 water rescues in houston. a deluge that hit the city ws made worse by hurricane patricia. rain fell as much as two to three inches per hour at one point. most of southeast texas has been under a flood watch all day. near the texas-mexico border last night in the city of westlico one woman found her home in knee-deep water. there is late word tonight of a levee breach in navarro county, texas south of dallas. that area saw 18 to 20 inches of the flood water in houston is receding and the rain is moving east toward louisiana where we are feeling it tonight. nearly 85% of the bayou state is under a flash flood watch. and jeff, that alert extends along the gulf coast, affecting more than 6 million people. >> david begnaud, thank you. the iowa caucuses are 99
shows ben carson has moved into a tie with donald trump in iowa. on the democratic side hillary clinton is three points ahead of bernie sanders. nancy cordes is in des moines. >> let's give our democratic presidential candidates another round! >> reporter: in a des moines arena the candidates went head to head and their supporters did too. >> i believe that she will win! >> we want, we want bernie! >> reporter: on stage, sanders showed a sharper side, calling out the front-runner, though not by name. >> i will not abandon any segment of american society, whether you're gay or black or latino, poor, working class. just because it is politically expedient at a given time. >> reporter: he highlighted his long-time support for same-sex marriage and opposition to the iraq war. implying clinton was late to the party.
>> i listened carefully to what bush and cheney and rumsfeld had to say, and i said no. >> reporter: clinton had less to say about him, though she did argue she's more electable. >> it's not enough just to rail against the republicans or the billionaires. we actually have to win this election. >> reporter: the jefferson jackson dinner is attended by thousands of party faithful who want to be wowed. clinton was upstaged here eight years ago by an upstart senator from illinois. >> america, our moment is now. >> reporter: so this time her campaign pulled out all the stops, with a pre-dinner concert by katy perry and the first campaign remarks by former president bill clinton. >> i want to break a ceiling. i am tired of the stranglehold that women have had on the job of presidential spouse. >> reporter: the new cbs news battleground tracker shows clinton supporters are more enthusiastic about her candidacy than they were even a month ago bringing her closer to the level of enthusiasm that bernie
the body of army master sergeant joshua wheeler arrived at dover air force base in delaware this weekend. he was the soldier killed thursday during a raid in northern iraq to free dozens of prisoners held by isis. tonight there is dramatic new video of that raid from a camera mounted to a soldier. here's elizabeth palmer in northern iraq. >> reporter: in the video, captured by a helmet camera, dazed and terrified prisoners bolt from their jail before dawn, helped along by kurdish
special forces. in the background you can hear constant gunfire as kurds and american special forces battle isis fighters, whose ferocious initial resistance killed master sergeant wheeler. there's a glimpse of a huge isis flag and jail cells built inside the house of a tribal leader. when the prisoners first came out, 69 of them in all, they were patted down by kurds, but you can hear there is american backup. >> hey. hold them up right there. >> reporter: these are not the prisoners the raid was designed to rescue. the kurds had hoped to find 20 of their own fighters who were captured and paraded by isis back in february. as soon as the raid was finished, a coalition aircraft flew over the compound and destroyed it with a bomb. in the morning light video posted by isis shows the wreckage and the casualties of a
in all, say the kurds, isis lost 20 men. on top of those 69 prisoners, jeff, the raid also netted six live isis fighters who will be a very valuable source of information for both the kurds and the americans as they build up a more complete picture of how the group is structured and how it operates. >> all right, liz, thank you very much. the state of florida is holding its first state-sanctioned bear hunt in over 20 years. it was supposed to last a week, but so many bears have been killed it might close earlier than expected. here's jamie yuccas. >> careful. >> reporter: when the hunt started on saturday, officials said that up to 320 bears could legally be killed. by midday today hunters had killed 293. the florida wildlife commission may shut the project down tonight and stressed in a conference call that the numbers are still in range. >> none of these numbers are worrying to us.
we have large resilient bear populations. >> reporter: in 2012 the black bear was still on the endangered species list. now wildlife officers estimate there are more than 3,000 bears in florida and fewer places for them to live. cameras have caught bears walking by bicyclists on a neighborhood street, roaming through yards, and going through garbage, even making themselves a little too much at home. central florida hunter brian smith says they've become a nuisance. the property. so it's nice to be able to take this one out. stop the madness for the love of the bears >> reporter: animal rights activists protested for six months before the hunt, which was unsuccessfully challenged in court. opponents like nicole bauer monitored the bears being brought in. >> it's beyond me that that's our only means, is just to kill them. >> reporter: but more than 3,700 hunters got permits. 70-year-old grandma glenda bryant was one of them. >> you've got to be in it to win it.
>> reporter: she came home empty-handed but was glad to see the hunt was successful. >> the basic problem with some of these bears is they're just roaming around and they tear stuff up. >> reporter: wildlife officials admit the hunt went much faster than they thought it would. one hunter was ticketed for killing a bear cub. another received a warning for killing a bear that was under weight. jeff? >> jamie, thank you very much. a study suggests new guidelines for fasting during labor. and why a famed artist will not be making his statement with legos. the "overnight news" will be
laundry can wreak havoc on our clothes, ruining them forever. sweaters stretch into muumuus. and pilled cardigans become pets. but it's not you, it's the laundry. protect your clothes from stretching, fading, and fuzz. ...with downy fabric conditioner... it not only softens and freshens, it helps protect clothes from the damage of the wash. so your favorite clothes stay your favorite clothes. downy fabric conditioner. wash in the wow. you get a cold. you can't breathe through your nose. suddenly, you're a mouthbreather. well, just put on a breathe right strip which instantly opens your nose up to 38% more than cold medicine alone. shut your mouth and say goodnight mouthbreathers.
for years women have been told it's dangerous to eat during labor, both for them and their baby. a new study suggests that may actually be a good thing. here's contessa brewer. >> reporter: ask moms who've about fasting their way through the ordeal. think, just to feel like ice >> reporter: for generations the rule was no food or liquid it into the lungs. especially under general anesthesia. >> reporter: but anesthesia's
now typically an epidural or spinal block. dr. tara sharazian is an obstetrician at nyu langone medical center. >> the rules that have been in place for eating and drinking during labor were intended for practices that have been outdated for generations. >> absolutely. they are practices that do not affect the vast majority of women. >> reporter: a study by the american society of anesthesiologists now shows most healthy women would benefit from a light meal during labor. researchers analyzed hundreds of% recent studies and conclude moms in labor need the same kind of energy and calories as marathon runners. when they don't get it, their bodies turn to fat for energy. that can reduce contractions, leading to longer labor and lower health scores in newborns. >> in low-risk women some drinking and mild fluids, light meal is okay. >> reporter: the revised advice should mean most moms come out
only pangs of love, not hunger. >> of course maybe not a french meal. not a three-course meal. but yeah. yeah. it's physical effort, right? >> reporter: well, not every obstetrician will be quick to change protocols, but experts say it should allow for a conversation before the baby's due date about each woman's particular situation, health and risk factors for eating and drinking at the hospital. >> all right, contessa, thanks very much. up next here, rising health care premiums.
as enrollment opens for employee-based health plans, there is sticker shock across the country. out-of-pocket costs are going up again. according to one study deductibles have climbed seven times faster on average than wages over the past five years. cbs news business analyst jill schlesinger is here with more on this. before we talk about why let's talk about what. how much are costs going up? >> kaiser says insurance companies are charging our employers 4% more. that's not the big number. the employers are now going to turn around and pass that on to us. so here's the damage. the average premiums that we pay, over $1,000 for singles, almost $5,000 for families. employees' premiums have increased by 24% in the past five years. a staggering 83% over the last decade. and that's not all. because we also have the deductibles, right? the amount of money out of pocket before our insurance kicks in.
that's about $1,100 for single coverage. it's up 67% in five years. >> why is all this happening? >> you know, it's a combination of factors. we know that the prices for drugs and medical devices and in-hospital stays has really been soaring. we add to that the demographics. we know we've got more people who are over the age of 60, we're living longer, and in fact obesity, we're getting fatter, that's adding to the problem. >> the question a lot of people ask is how does the affordable care act or obamacare play into all this? >> you know, unfortunately, although obamacare actually enrolled millions of people it didn't do a lot to contain costs. i know that's a bit of a head scratcher for people. but it really didn't. prices are all over the place. we saw a nationwide study for mammograms. anywhere from $43 to almost $1,900 for the same test. we also know that the price of a hepatitis c drug for a 12-week course is over $80,000. if you've got a rare disease, that can be up to half a million dollars. more people are enrolled in the health care plans.
we just haven't done enough to contain those costs yet. >> jill, thanks very much. >> thank you. the chinese artist ai weiwei is feuding with the lego company. in an instagram post he says the company wouldn't sell to him because it "cannot approve the use of legos for political works." a new lego theme park is in the works in shanghai. weiwei placed some legos in the toilet in protest. still ahead, unmasking emotions. there's an app for that.
finally tonight, our smartphones can now read our emotions and react. which as don dahler reports, creates a world of interesting possibilities. >> reporter: the devices we can't stop looking at in a soon be looking back, observing our joy and sadness and expressing it alongside our texts and chat. >> we're all about bringing emotional intelligence to our digital world. >> so emojis aren't enough? >> emojis are not enough. >> reporter: rana klaiovy and the team at m.i.t. recorded the facial expressions of more than 3 million people in 75 countries to develop emotional recognition software. >> it's found your face. it's mapping all the different textures, wrinkles and facial
>> we are able to read about 15 facial expressions. and then these combine to create or portray about eight emotional states. so happy, sad, fear, anger, disgust, contempt, confusion, surprise. >> reporter: so far the primary money maker for the app is audience testing of commercials, 1,400 brands use it to find out frame by frame what's funny or sad or spellbinding or boring. >> our final story begins with a chance encounter -- >> in our own test two staffers watched a cbs news story by steve hartman. this line shows the reaction to a little boy who finds $20 and gives it to a soldier. >> because he was a soldier and soldiers remind me of my dad. >> reporter: we learn that dad was killed in action in iraq. but later -- >> the kid gave you a bigger gift than $20. >> a lifetime direction.
>> you see the emotional journey. >> reporter: el kaliouby is working to expand the use of the app in the mental health field for depression and to bring emotional interactivity to you every day, like this robot that comes to you when you smile and runs when you frown. >> we envision a world where all our devices have an emotion chip. could be things like your car or your fridge or your mirror. they're all emotion aware and they can sense and adapt to your emotions in real time. >> your car would know if you're about to get road rage. >> yeah. exactly. >> but there's a little bit of a creepy factor. are we losing privacy with this kind of technology? the fact that all of our contraptions will know how we're feeling. >> emotions are very personal. i do recognize that there are going to be abuses of this technology. but i really do believe, you know, the good that can come out of this technology kind of outweighs the potential for abuse. >> reporter: something to ponder as we face the future. don dahler, cbs news, waltham, massachusetts.
that is the "overnight news" for this monday. for some of you the news continues. for others check back with us a little later for the morning news and "cbs this morning." from the broadcast center in new york city, i'm jeff glor. >> announcer: this is the "cbs welcome to the "overnight news," everyone. i'm jeff glor. joe biden said wednesday he would not run for president. so why and what's next? the vice president and his wife sat down with norah o'donnell. >> if i thought we could have put together the campaign that our supporters deserved and our contributors deserved, i would have gone ahead and done it. >> but why did it take you to tuesday to figure that out? >> because it took that long for us to decide as a family -- look, dealing with the loss of
beau, any parent listening who's lost a child knows you that can't -- it doesn't follow schedules or primaries or caucuses and contributors and the like. it just -- and everybody grieves at a different pace. >> and we had such hopes that he was going to live. and so i think it really wasn't until the day he died that we gave -- well, i don't think we ever gave up hope. >> reporter: the bidens lost their son beau in may at age 46 to brain cancer. the vice president told us that during his illness and while grieving he put his plans to run for president on hold. >> what was the single most important thing in deciding not to run? >> i said from the beginning that i don't know whether our ability to deal with the loss of beau would reach a point where we could do that before time ran out. and it was nothing we could control. >> were you disappointed or were you relieved?
>> no, i think i was disappointed. i thought joe would be a great president. and i've seen his -- in the 40 years we've been together i've seen, you know, the strength of his character, his optimism. you know, his hope. >> i'm glad we're doing this interview. i like the way that sounds. >> so i believed he would have been the best president. >> i mean, how much did you struggle with this, about whether to run or not? >> what i struggled with was whether or not we could emotionally -- i could. speak for me. i could emotionally handle this in a way that when i thought of beau i didn't -- it wasn't a problem. for example, at one point late summer i thought, well, you know, i think we can do this. i can't forget our little
granddaughter, we're down by the swimming pool, mom says it's time for dinner. and everybody goes up. and she's lying between my legs with her head on my chest and turns around and puts her arms around me and starts sobbing, says, "pop, i see daddy all the time. i see daddy all the time. pop, you smell like daddy. you're not going to leave me, are you, pop?" well, when that happens you go, i don't know, man. how -- so there are those kinds of ups and downs. but by the time now, you know, we go till we were home last weekend and we went to her. she's a great little cross-country. she's only 11 years old. >> track meet. >> track meet. and she runs and she finishes and i give her a big hug. she said, "daddy would be happy, wouldn't he?" so it's a total -- it just takes time. and until you get there you know it's not an appropriate thing to throw your -- and by the way, unless you throw your entire
>> how often did the two of you talk about this decision? every night? >> well, we just looked at each other half the time. like i'd get up in the morning some mornings and i'd say, you know, jill, i think i -- i have to admit to you, what was driving us crazy is you guys, we love you but you know, serious press people would say, well, we have on good authority from a very close friend of joe biden's that he's going to announce tomorrow or we have it on good authority he's not going to run. and that used to drive me crazy. so part of it was i'd get up some mornings and say let's just end this thing, man, we don't have time -- i don't want to keep getting buffeted like this. and so some mornings we'd say -- like i remember about a month ago we're on the porch at home and i said, you know, maybe we should just -- i don't know if we're going to get there in time. maybe we should just say we're not going. and jill said what about the supreme court?
what about community colleges? i felt like we were -- everything we'd worked so hard for in this administration, you know, could all -- could just all change. >> now, that's because she's prejudiced. she thinks i have the best chance of winning the general election. >> but that's really interesting to hear that. that you were really pushing him to go forward. >> oh, yeah. sure. >> will you ever run for political office again? >> no. no. i can do so much more, i believe. i hope i leave office as a respected figure who can convene people and bring people together, and i just think the president and i talked about what we'd do together, what we each want to do out of office. >> you said something in the rose garden. you said if i could be anything i would want to be the president that ended cancer. >> it's true.
i acknowledge. but you know, cancer affects every single family. and you know, one of the great advantages and advantage i had of being vice president, i had access to the finest people in the world. and i am confident if we made the decision john kennedy made in going to the moon and we said we are going to cure cancer within the next several years we can do that. that's how close it is. >> reporter: after we interviewed the bidens together, jill biden stepped out and we continued our conversation with the vice president. >> believe me, i'm sure she's happy to. >> thank you. >> there was a lot you had to weigh in this run for president. i know you talked to your son beau about running for president. what did he want you to do? >> the first thing i'd like to do -- and you're being very polite the way you're asking me the question because some people have written that, you know,
beau on his deathbed said dad, you've got to run and there was this sort of hollywood moment that -- you know, nothing like that ever, ever happened. beau from the time he was in his 30s, or actually his late 20s, was my -- he and hunter are my two most reliable advisers. and beau all along thought that i should run and i could win. but there was not what is sort of made out as this kind of hollywoodesque thing that at the last minute beau grabbed my hand and said dad, you've got to run like win one for the gipper. it wasn't anything like that. >> i want to show you a photo of president obama and you. this is in the oval office. this is right before you went out into the rose garden and told everybody you weren't running for president. what advice did the president give you? >> i called the president early in the morning. he was in the gym working out. and he took my call. and i said, mr. president, i
let's get these dayquil liquid gels and go. but these liquid gels are new. mucinex fast max. it's the same difference. this one is max strength and fights mucus. mucinex fast max. the only cold and flu liquid gel that's max-strength and fights mucus. let's end this. mary gets her bounce on. wow mary, is like, every mom from the neighborhood here? look at them all... ...'judgie'. see? you are looking good! using bounce dryer sheets is paying off. your clothes have fewer wrinkles, and static cling... ...ain't bringing you down. oh! and look, it's that ms.brooke-thinks-she's-all-that- and-a-bag-of-chips.
your a-game. your a-game. bounce, the 4 in 1 dryer sheet. get your bounce on. cbs battleground tracker polls show gop front-runner donald trump maintaining his lead in key primary states. support of 38% of likely gop primary voters. ben carson is second with 12%. the rest of the field is in single digits. in south carolina it is trump at 40%, carson with 23%. the rest far behind. but in iowa the republican race has tightened. trump and carson are tied at 27% with ted cruz coming in third. john dickerson spoke to trump about the iowa poll and other topics for "face the nation." >> well, i don't understand iowa
because frankly i just left and we had tremendous crowds and tremendous enthusiasm and frankly even to be tied i'm a little surprised. i know that i'm very honored by what's happened in new hampshire and south carolina. it's amazing results. amazing. but i think that iowa, it has that same incredible feeling. we had a rally there the other day, and it was so intense and it was so much love in the room. so i'm actually surprised, very surprised that i'm even tied in iowa. >> you also mentioned mr. carson was controlled by his pac, but he has received more small dollar donations than anybody else. so isn't that a sign that he's got grassroots support and not that he's controlled by his pac, as you've claimed about other people? >> well, the people running his pac are highly trained professionals, i would imagine. and those people are using that pac differently than you're supposed to use a pac. they are running iowa for him. they are in there.
different than what you're supposed to be doing. ben is in iowa very little. he does not go to iowa much. the people are doing leaflets. they're doing all this stuff. they're essentially campaigning for him in iowa. and that's not what a pac is supposed to be. it's not supposed to happen that way. and as you know, i've disavowed all pacs. i had many people setting up pacs for me and we sent letters last week say we don't want -- we respect them, we love them, assuming it's all on the up and up. because i don't know -- you know, these people run pacs. i don't know what they do with everything. but certainly for the runs that are doing it with the right intention. but we disavowed all pacs, every one of them, john. and every candidate should do the same thing. this whole pac concept is fraught with problems, and i think you're going to see tremendous problems with pacs over the years. and i am disavowing all pacs. i don't want anybody -- i'm self-funding my campaign. other than the little
contributions where people send $7 and $50 and $100, we love that because that's an investment, that's a real investment in our country in the campaign. but other than that i have totally -- i don't want any money. and i think that people should disavow -- candidates should disavow their pacs. >> let me ask you about another one of your challengers. let's listen to something jeb bush said recently. >> i've got a lot of really cool things i could do other than sit around being miserable listening to people demonize me and me feeling compelled to demonize them. that is a joke. elect trump if you want that. >> so he says you're a demonizer. >> well, look, i'm trying to say it like it is. his campaign is in disarray. he paid one person $1.3 million, and he's languishing way, way back in the pac. but his campaign is a total disaster. he's paid people far too much. now he's cutting everybody's salaries. as a businessman if he can cut
he do it when he started? why is he doing it now? why did he hire them in the first place for so much? that means they would have worked for a lot less money. but his campaign is in disarray. his whole thing is a mess. but he paid one person, as i understand it -- now, maybe that's incorrect. but paid over a million dollars for one person, and it's okay maybe after everything's done they get a great incentive. but he's doing very poorly. you don't pay that kind of money. so he's got some problems. >> let me ask you a couple policy questions here. we're about to have a fight over the government's ability to borrow money, the debt limit. do you think it's an economic problem if the debt limit is not raised? will that hurt the economy? >> well, i think what they should do is use the debt limit as a very strong negotiating tool to make other changes and to cut costs elsewhere. the republicans don't know how to negotiate, to be honest with you. i'm a republican. it's embarrassing to watch them negotiate. >> but do you -- >> i mean, john boehner said the other day he will not use the debt limit. he will not close.
well, i tell you what, when you say that you have now given everything to the democrats and to president obama because they have their way 100% -- >> but let me ask you about that question, the debt limit. do you think that if it's breached that that's an economic problem? leaving aside the question of negotiation. because there's a debate -- >> i don't want to say. and i'll tell you why. we should use it as negotiation. and the problem we have in this country, we're so predictable. whether it's with isis or with iraq or with the negotiation of a debt limit. boehner should not be saying we will not close because you can't negotiate once you say that. you've given up 95% of your strength when you do that. so i'm not going to say but i will tell you, it's an amazing tool to negotiate because it is a very, very -- i mean, it's fairly catastrophic if it happens, but some people are willing to go through that in order to win. and by the way, and i'm not saying they shouldn't be. in order to win and in order to
much fat. it's like jeb bush's campaign. there's waste and there's fat. and he's trying to solve the problem. but see, a person like that cannot solve the problem of the country because the country has the same problem that he has. >> donald trump says he doesn't want any superpacs supporting him, but as of last week at least one was operating apparently with trump's blessing. julianna goldman has the story. >> they have these things called super pacs. no one knows what the hell they are, what they mean. it's the dumbest thing i've ever seen. >> reporter: railing against the pacs and the cndidates who have them are regular attack lines in donald trump stump speeches. >> they want to take these people like little puppets and they want to say you do as i told you because i gave you $5 million and you'd better do it. >> reporter: trump made those comments last night amid a flurry of questions stemming from a "washington post" article on whether one of the groups based in denver, the make
america great again pac, was operating with trump's approval. people familiar with the campaign's initial planning tell cbs news that before trump was an official candidate his team discussed whether to sanction a dedicated super pac and to call it "make america great again," a phrase trump has trademarked. one republican operative tweeted that she had been invited to meet with the campaign in june, ahead of his announcement. she said in those meetings she was told the campaign was planning to have an allied super pac. then over the summer trump's daughter's in-laws, the kushner family, gave $100,000 to the group. they hosted a meet and greet in august at their new jersey beach house. trump attended and some people gave money to the super pac. more connections were revealed later this week in another article by the "washington post," which published an e-mail also obtained by cbs news showing that in early september the consultant who was running the denver-based super pac sent a fund-raising solicitation to a donor where he said he obtained their e-mail from rhona, trump's
long-time secretary. on wednesday trump's campaign attorney sent letters to nine super pacs backing trump including the make america great again pac saying your organization is not authorized to use mr. trump's name and likeness in connection with its fund-raising activities and we are formally disavowing such activities. by thursday night the group's director said it would be winding down, saying "mr. trump has said he doesn't have a super pac. to erase any doubt, i am closing my super pac." and trump insists that every candidate should follow his lead. >> all candidates disavow your super pacs. run for office and be proud but disavow your super pacs. drop them. drop them. >> reporter: the trump campaign hasn't responded to repeated questions from cbs news about whether he sanctioned the make america great again super pac, why he would have been okay with his extended family giving it

parents could remember, 11-year-old breana carsey has had this crazy dream. she's always wanted a broodmare, a mommy horse that would give birth to a baby horse that would grow up to become a racing champion. >> absolutely. this was a fairy tale for her from day one. we put it off for five years almost because we don't have a farm. so we've got to go rent stalls somewhere. >> this sounds expensive. >> yeah. >> why don't you say no? >> well, as she'll tell you, she has me wrapped around her finger. >> are you serious? >> reporter: her foal, an ohio standard bred, was born in the spring of 2013. she named it mjb got faith. mjb for the initials of the kids in her family and got faith for the faith she instantly had in him. >> i really loved him. >> from the beginning. >> mm-hmm. he's super soft too. >> reporter: sweet. but that quick bond posed a real problem for this pushover dad. >> come here, bud. >> reporter: see, for whatever
explained to his daughter that her horse could never race, that it was a runt from poor breeding stock, she would just agree to sell it. but obviously not. >> she's like, there's no price, daddy. so i'm talking to my wife. it's like, we really got ourselves in a mess here. >> yeah. >> and i don't know how we're going to get out of this. so we stake into the races. >> this horse that doesn't belong in the races. >> the horse that i thought we should have gotten rid of already. >> he was more about the money. >> what were you seeing that your dad wasn't seeing? >> he didn't believe in him. >> reporter: brian was stuck. committed to boarding and training this longshot to end all longshots. and this is not a wealthy family. brian runs a small logistics company. and ohio racing, which is harness-style racing, is a $900 million a year industry. >> i want to see him go fast. >> reporter: mjb got faith was so slow he barely even qualified to compete. but then somehow, some way won his first race.
won his second race. his third. and his fourth. qualifying him for the state championship held recently in columbus, ohio. >> i said, baby, if you finish third, you should be so thankful. she goes daddy, if he finishes last, i'm going to be thankful. but he's going to win. >> mjb got faith on the inside. >> reporter: and so it was. >> come on! >> reporter: that this little horse with no pedigree, this pet with no reason for being here beyond the blind faith of a little girl, won an ohio sire stakes championship. >> she says dad, i told you, you've got to have faith. >> reporter: breana took home $100,000 that day. she's already given away half of it to charity. and as for the other half, she plans to use that money as a down payment on a farm. >> i just want to have a farm and be able to go walk out my back door and see him. >> reporter: and that's her plan
